Kara laukā tu un kara laukā es,

Brīdis neatļauj vairs spēlēt paslēpes.

Dzirdi.

You’re on the battleground and I’m on the battleground,

The moment doesn’t let you play any more hide-and-seek.

Hear this.

Kalniem pāri citi kalni būs,

Ar vieglu soli pāri tiem, ar vienu soli.

There will be mountains over mountains,

With a light step you get over them, with just one step.

Cīņas karstumā kļūst nenošķirams viss,

Mazas uzvaras vai lieli upuri.

Redzi.

In the heat of the fight everything becomes indistinct,

Small victories or great sacrifices.

See this.

Kalniem pāri citi kalni būs,

Ar vieglu soli pāri tiem, ar vienu soli.

There will be mountains over mountains,

With a light step you get over them, with just one step.

Zalves rībēt beigs līdz lepnums atkāpsies,

Zemē mītā reiz jau atkal zāle dīgst.

Jūti, jūti.

Rumbles of volleys will stop when pride retreats,

The grass once tramped into the ground grows again.

Feel this, feel this.

Kalniem pāri citi kalni būs,

Ar vieglu soli pāri tiem, ar vienu soli.

There will be mountains over mountains,

With a light step you get over them, with just one step.

Simtiem vēl, tūkstošiem reižu paklupsim

Un simtiem punu pieres vidū būs.

Viss ar laiku sadzīst, visi sniegi kūst,

Pavasaris līdz ar lediem salauzis ir arī mūs.

Tik izskalojot krastus stipras upes būs.

Hundreds more, thousands of times we’ll stumble

And hundred bumps on our heads we’ll have.

Time heals everything, all the snow shall melt,

Together with the ice, the spring has broken us as well.

Only when the shores are scoured, rivers will get strong.

Kalniem pāri citi kalni būs,

Ar vieglu soli pāri tiem, ar vienu soli.

There will be mountains over mountains,

With a light step you get over them, with just one step.
